The PCLS Curriculum Department/Teaching and Learning Team developed the W-o-W! Program to recognize the hard work and creativity of PCLS students.
In an effort to help build a community of writers, the team encourages schools to display the W-o-W’s work and asks teachers to use the W-o-W’s work as part of their writing instruction.
Congratulations to Harvey High School 10th grader Dezmond Butler, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week.)
Dezmond was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. Intervention Specialist, Ms. Kristin Oriani, submitted his opinion writing because he “drafted a 5 sentence paragraph with main idea, 3 well supported details using text, and a concluding sentence. [His] response was independently done and is the best I have seen from my class this year.”
Dezmond will be invited to read his opinion writing at an upcoming Board of Education meeting.
